PEARL RIVER, NY — With multiple interests now involved, the fight for the future of the Pearl River Theater is heating up.

Plans to resurrect the old Pearl River Movie Theater have become more complicated now that the building’s owner wants to turn it into commercial space.

Edmund Lane, principal of Skyview Plaza Development Corp., had proposed building 12 condominiums at the Central Avenue building, but he was prevented from doing so because he needed a zone change for senior housing.

is not the first game remaster Tim Schafer (Timothy Schafer): in 2009, out of The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition , which also restored picture and sound, then there was a Day of the Tentacle Remastered , and in 2015- m we got the updated Grim Fandango . So, the staff of Double Fine studio staff is stuffed properly, and it is not necessary to wait for dirty tricks from the reincarnation of Full Throttle . Another question: who today needs the quest of 1995 year release?

If you have been lying for twenty years and two years on the stove, are too young or have already forgotten what’s what in Full Throttle , refresh. The game is dedicated to the adventures of Ben’s biker in the world of the future, which elusively echoes with the universe of “Mad Max”. The traditional car industry breathes in frankincense, the hoverkars have become fashionable, and along the slopes of the 2040th, rushing retrogrades, including gangs of motorcyclists. The last producer of bikes, Malcolm Corley, is traveling with his deputy Ripburger to meet with the shareholders of Corley Motors, but on the way he turns off into a tavern to skip a beer with the dancers from the group “Ferrets” and the hero of the game Ben. Here Ripburger, sounded in the original is not someone, and Mark Hamill (Mark Hamill) of the “Star Wars”, and activates his cunning plan.

He suggests “Ferrets” to accompany Corley as bodyguards, but Ben is adamant – cowboys do not serve anyone. Therefore, the hustlers of Ripburger hammer the hero on the head and thrust it into the garbage can in the backyard, and the gang is informed that your leader agreed and was able to check the way. Naturally, when Ben comes to his senses, he is bursting with a desire to take revenge. A villain, in turn, intends to crack down on Corley, substitute “Ferrets” and at the same time cover the last shop for the production of motorcycles in the country to do instead of them minibuses. Whoever wins the battle of the loner against the world of unscrupulous capitalists, I think, is understandable.

What is more important here is not a story – let it be at least thrice good – but entourage. The biker with the face and brutality of Conan the Barbarian brings justice to the hard rock of The Gone Jackals. This immediately creates the right mood – automatically preparing for violence and steepness. Powerful motors, leather jackets, dueles are akin to cavalry, with lovingly drawn details of futuristic technology – everything is now in an updated graphics, which, however, gives cartoonishness. Who does not like, he is free to break his eyes about pixels in retrogime, because the picture along with the soundtrack we were allowed to switch freely. But humor is beautiful without modification: from the replicas of the characters (“the client with the knife is always right”) to just comical situations – when, for example, Ben climbs through the fence dump under the track of the spy movie.

But Full Throttle and without this have something to attract the modern public. Because, unlike most advenchur 90s, pouring in tons of text, offering to puzzle over long problems without logic and to wade through scenario schizophrenia, here you feel much more comfortable. Ben interacts with objects and characters with the help of hands, a kick with a boot, a look or a dialogue. And to understand where to kick in the face, and where to talk heart to heart, it is not so difficult. In extreme cases, the hero himself will say that he does not lick the garbage can and collect art objects.

The script switches the transmissions smoothly. Here a bit of action, they talked, here’s a story scene, and then they found the key card from the door. A minute of pathos, a joke, a puzzle – the rhythm is as if verified by the textbook. thereforeFull Throttle still keeps its appearance and does not treat us with inflections, which is what the so-called classics of the 90s, which turned into a heap of rubbish, sinned in full swing. It’s even cool that bad quests do not re-release, right?

With the mechanics of point and click and the use of inventory, too, there are no problems. It is enough to slightly move the convolutions: anyone in fact understands that for refilling gasoline from the tank you will need a canister with a hose, and walking on the minefield, it is better to put toys in front of you on batteries. Though all the same there are moments where to hesitate – time to spit. Managing a bike with a passing beating of enemies by a chain or a board has remained a weak point. Double Fine Winx Games employees, on the one hand, escaped the heap of fresh problems, but on the other hand they did not improve what they have been asking about this for twenty-two years. True, with a certain skill or patience for several attempts, you can go and battles. What is palpably lacking is the Russian localization: without knowing the language, you lose some of the jokes, getting confused in the dialogues. Hopefully, the craftsmen will screw to the Full Throttle Remastered the same translation from the “Akella” .

The general fashion for remasters is due to the fact that we all feel a little sad. Years go away, the cultural code changes right before our eyes: what used to be the norm, now someone’s feelings hurt. But for the desire to please everyone at once and twist the schedule to the full, there is no longer that enthusiasm and once inspiring courage. And the heroes, chewing gum and nadaravshie ass, became mumbles, droning under the nose: “Maybe first we’ll discuss everything?”

So Full Throttle is an artifact of a vanishing civilization. Ben bangs the door with his foot and says that it was. He flaunts in desperate situations, he is at full speed with a chainsaw and a morgenstern, he sleeps soundly in a trash can, he is ready to kill for a stolen fuel hose, but at the same time he rushes to ask the girl to throw it on the car to the place of heroism. Now such an extravagant combination of dementia and courage is encountered less often and is usually served in an ironic manner. For example, in parodies of the gunmen of the 80’s and 90’s. A remaster or re-release of serials based on previous ideas, like, for example, DOOM 2016 th, bring to us the spirit of the era in its original form.

If you understand what this is about, you definitely should buy and pass Full Throttle Remastered. The price of the game by today’s standards is not serious, and the pleasure and nostalgia in it is a wagon with a cart. It also makes sense to join lovers of the genre, who would like to get on the classics of the clock for three or four hours. The rest of gamers will not lose much, just passing by, – this club is fun, but it is open only for its own.
